There have been some proposals that stem cells exist in the ovarian surface epithelium (OSE) of the adult human ovary; however, no direct evidence of such cells has been given until now. The aim of this study was to isolate the putative ovarian stem cells (OSCs) from the OSE layer in women with no naturally present oocytes and follicles--20 postmenopausal(More)
Little is known about parthenogenesis in the human ovary. What is known is related to patients with teratoma in their medical history. Ovarian surface epithelium (OSE) was often proposed as a source of ovarian stem cells with an embryonic character in the past, and was also termed "germinal epithelium." The aim of this study was to isolate putative stem(More)
In this review, we describe the platelet surface molecules with special focus on the polymorphic glycoproteins giving rise to the human platelet alloantigen (HPA) system. We list the platelet glycoprotein complexes GPIa/IIa, GPIIb/IIIa, GPIb/V/IX and some other molecules, the corresponding genes that encode them and we describe their polymorphisms as well(More)
BACKGROUND Slow graft healing in bone tunnels and a slow graft ligamentization process after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction are some of the reasons for prolonged rehabilitation. AIMS The purpose of this study was to determine if the use of platelet gel (PG) accelerates early graft revascularization after ACL reconstruction. METHODS PG(More)
Tissue repair begins with clot formation and platelet degranulation, which release the growth factors (GFs) necessary for wound repair. Platelet-derived GFs are biologically active substances that enhance tissue repair mechanisms such as chemotaxis, cell proliferation, angiogenesis, extracellular matrix deposition, and remodeling. This review describes the(More)
Amniotic membrane (AM) is the innermost, multilayered part of the placenta. When harvested, processed and stored properly, its properties, stemming from AM biological composition, make it a useful tissue for ophthalmic surgery. AM was shown to have several beneficial effects: it promotes epithelization, has antimicrobial effects, decreases inflammation,(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS A 50-year-old type 2 diabetic male with a comminuted fracture of the tibia and delayed union after insufficient initial osteosynthesis with a resulting pseudoarthrosis was treated operatively by using a graft composed of platelet gel mixed with autologous cancellous bone. The essential idea of this therapy was to combine the healing(More)
BACKGROUND After multiple transfusions, the serologic typing of autologous blood group phenotypes is difficult, because of mixed RBC populations. The genotyping of ABO, Rh, Kell, Kidd, and Duffy systems could be used to determine autologous blood group antigen status. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Blood samples from patients and donors were analyzed before and(More)
Immunocytochemistry is a powerful tool for detection and visualization of specific molecules in living or fixed cells, their localization and their relative abundance. One of the most commonly used fluorescent DNA dyes in immunocytochemistry applications is 4′,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole dihydrochloride, known as DAPI. DAPI binds strongly to DNA and is used(More)
Sulfation of drugs depends on the availability of 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphosulfate (PAPS), which requires inorganic sulfate for its synthesis. Therefore, decreased alimentary intake of inorganic sulfate or its precursor, cysteine, may compromise sulfation of xenobiotics. To test this hypothesis, separate groups of rats were maintained for 5 days on(More)
